Household Info

PATH: Census > Households > Household Info

The Household Information lists the phone number, the address and any members who may be in the home. Household information is used to view individuals tied together under one house name. Like other areas in the Census module, this information becomes vital when assigning guardians and generating household mailings and locating other student data.
